LAFF field trip Linwood - Sat 29 Apr 2017
Site manager: H&IOW Trust
Nearest postcode: BH24 3LX
Park at SU184092
Park iniitally at the Appleslade New Forest carpark where we can see if we need to reduce the number of cars we take as there is limited parking at the HWT Linwood reserve which is a ten minute walk away or a short drive.
The Appleslade carpark is on a small forest road that runs from Moyles Court to Linwood parallel to the A35. Leave the M27 at Jn1 and travel north on the B3078 towards Fordingbridge passing through Brook taking the second road on the left by the Bell Inn. Turn left after a mile at the next crossroads towards Fritham. After a further mile take the long straight road on the right at Janesmoor plain to Linwood. After 2 miles turn right at the T junction onto the single track road towards Linwood. The carpark is a further two miles away on the left side of the road almost opposite the Red Shoot Inn where we shall have our Christmas lunch.
This is the first day of a visit by the Lost and Found project team to help the group explore new ideas about looking for and recording fungi using the experience and expertise the team have gained from working with other groups. The first day will be spent in the field at Linwood followed by a day at IBM Hursley where we will combine some field work in the grounds of Hursley combined with a workshop for examiining specimens and discussion
